An elderly gentleman who had slipped on rocks and injured himself is airlifted by the air sea rescue helicopter from Northam Burrows this afternoon.
I was very heartened to see him waving as he was winched up.

Here is my picture on a local news website: http://www.thisisnorthdevon.co.uk/news/Man-82-rescued-falling-rocks/article-1833121-detail/article.html

they do an incredible job....have watched the little red air ambulances many times in this area - people often seem to get injured on Dartmoor.....always an amazing sight.

They do indeed Rachel.
The down-draught of the helicopter was amazing - blowing said and other stuff everywhere!

That's solid photojournalism. As for the winch ride I'm not sure whether it looks terrifying or fun. ;-)
